The founder of Ila - Denise Leicester (who I mentioned in my previous post) writes a little more on the topic of chemicals in products in her own blog. http://www.ila-spa.com/denise-connects/beauty-awareness-%E2%80%93-hidden-chemicals
This is certainly something that people should be thinking about as the skin is our largest organ and dalily it is assaulted with a barage of lotions, potions and pollution. It is from my own negative experience with commercial products that led me down the path I am on today. I love aromatherapy and it is a wonderful joy that I receive from creating my own blends. If you can't make it yourself be sure to ask the right questions about what you are purchasing. You'll realise that you don't need half the things in your bathroom cabinet and what you do have is probably a waste of money.
I will soon be making products to purchase. If you are interested before I have anything available up on my site please contact me to see if we can come to some arrangement. I am happy to make small quantities to order.
